Key Stage 2 Results 2013

We are delighted with the Key Stage 2 results achieved by the four Harris Primary Academies which were open in the 2012-2013 academic year.  A huge congratulations to all of the pupils, parents and staff involved.   Of the four Academies, one was in its second year and the others were in their first year.  All of them replaced schools in challenging circumstances.  The results show the significant improvements that were made to children’s education. Some of the highlights are: We improved performance between 2012 and 2013 for every measure that is assessed  We are outperforming the average for other sponsored Academies on every measure Where we are not quite outperforming the national average, we are making good progress towards doing so.  One of the most important factors in a good school is the progress children are able to make through excellent teaching.  The proportion of children making the expected progress at Harris Primary Academies is extremely high – 98% in writing, 89% in reading and 94% in maths.   Sir Robin Bosher, Director of Primary Education at the Harris Federation writes: “In my experience as a Headteacher, children will only thrive at school if they feel consistently happy and safe.  “Especially at such a young age, they need to be treated in the right way for them as individuals and they need to feel motivated by every lesson.  Our teachers, support staff and leaders work extremely hard to make this happen in our Academies and I am very proud of their achievements.   “The results are extremely pleasing and give us a great base to build on in the current academic year.  Of course, there is more to a good education than just good results, but I am delighted that the improvements our Academies are making are showing through in our pupils’ standards.” Sir Dan Moynihan, CEO of the Harris Federation adds: “These superb results reflect the hard work of staff and leaders in each Academy and the exceptional support provided by Sir Robin Bosher and his team of experts in Primary education.  We have a vibrant community of pupils, parents and staff and we are extremely pleased with the progress being made.” Harris Primary Academy Coleraine Park were also praised in a recent article in the Evening Standard.  Click here to read the article in full.   Our Results Percentage Point Increase From 2012 National Average (All Schools) Average (Sponsored Academies) Reading, writing and maths: Level 4+ in all three 75% New measure for 2013 76% 62% Reading, writing and maths: Level 5+ in all three 23% 21% 10% Reading Level 4+ 80% +8% 86% 75% Level 5+ 37% +7% 45% 28% 2 levels of progress 89% +8% 88% 83% Writing Level 4+ 86% +6% 83% 74% Level 5+ 30% +12% 30% 18% 2 levels of progress 98% +6% 91% 88% Maths Level 4+ 86% +14% 85% 76% Level 5+ 34% +9% 41% 26% 2 levels of progress 94% +13% 88% 84% Grammar, punctuation and spelling Level 4+ 67% New measure for 2013 74% 59% Level 5+ 39% 48% 32%
